The MMORPG New World is currently launching its firm beta and inevitably many streamers and other MMIRPOG amateur players are flocking to Amazon’s proposal. Except that the game seems to cause big problems certain models of graphics cards.

It all starts with the tweet of streamer Gladd (all the same 430,000 subscribers on Twitch) which explains this:
Playing the New World beta on my EVGA 3090 has fried my graphics card completely. There are many accounts of this same thing happening with the same card with the same game.@TEAMEVGA @playnewworld @EVGA_JacobF
I just want to make sure this doesn’t happen to others

Playing New World Bta on my EVGA 3090 completely burned out my graphics card. There are many accounts of what happened with the same card and the same game.Obviously, this message has something to intrigue and when you dig a little on the official forum of the game, we realize that this is indeed not an isolated case and that several people suffer from this strange crash. A New World player even explains that after hearing a “POP” the card came loose and the PC shut down. Obviously, this seems to be happening with the EVGA 3090 FTW3 models.
We will wait to see if the problem becomes general before crying wolf. The problem is all the more complex since it is a high-end card with inevitably a number of potential problems less visible than with a card more accessible to the general public.
For the moment Amazon Games has not communicated on the subject. But there is no doubt that with a big streamer on the case, things will undoubtedly accelerate.
